A product includes: a part including at least one component characterized as an energetic material, where the at least one component is at least partially characterized by physical characteristics of being deposited by an electrophoretic deposition process. A method includes: providing a plurality of particles of an energetic material suspended in a dispersion liquid to an EPD chamber or configuration; applying a voltage difference across a first pair of electrodes to generate a first electric field in the EPD chamber; and depositing at least some of the particles of the energetic material on at least one surface of a substrate, the substrate being one of the electrodes or being coupled to one of the electrodes.
